With yesterday marking the beginning of the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere, and Toronto experiencing the first heat warnings of the year, what better way to cool down with a new track from Skratch Bastid and Shad? The Canadian duo previously collaborated on the 2013 EP The Spring Up, and "Limoncello" picks up right where they left off, with the DJ's horn-flecked production and turntables scratches perfectly complementing the rapper's easygoing rhymes.
